Off White Chiffon Pagoda Embroidered Peasant Top

A study in embroidery techniques and stitches, this vintage pagoda embroidered peasant top is a wonderment in craftsmanship alone and worthy of framing.  The colors are stunning.  One of my favorites I've ever seen.  A pastural setting of weeping and bonsai trees, seafaring travelers and pagodas done in a variety of embroidery stitches.

I will caution,  it is very tiny, for study or framing if not for wearing, see measurements below.

Condition:  Excellent/Very Good. The embroidery is in amazing shape.  There is a small-to-tiny weak area in the fabric in the back of the top,  it is almost all the way through, so I'm actually going to call it a hole. A few yellow/rust marks on one of the sleeves which are detectable in one or two of the images.  Fraying at the ends of of the tassels.  Still a love of a peasant top.

Unlined semi-sheer with no snaps or closures.

FINAL SALE for this delicate little love.
